throwback thursday: the pogues (for xmas)


It’s Christmas!!!

You had to know that any decent throwback around Christmas is gonna have to be this song right? Well we do not disappoint!

I have been listening to this song on Christmas eve for years now and it never gets old. Sometimes I have been too drunk to almost make it through before passing out. Other times I have been surrounded by great friends and loved ones. But either way I always listen to this song at the holidays.

I have never spent Christmas eve in a drunk tank though I do recall one Christmas eve where I kept repating ‘I’m going to jail tonight!!’ It had been a really hard year for me… I think it was 2001.

Anyway, it scared my little brother so much that he felt that he needed to follow me home from the bar to make sure I made it ok. I did and was kinda surprised when another car pulled in behind me. It was him and Christmas was saved!

I don’t really have a lot to say but I encourage you to read this fantastic article on the making of this song. It will make your holiday.

Now jam out to this and have a great holiday!!

Merry Christmas everyone and I’ll see you in the new year!

Dan Sharber wants to wish you a merry xmas to all and to all a good night!

  1. Thanks for the good tunes while I finished my work!!! Happy Holidays!

  2. Indeed. What a great song! And of course, it has the great vocals of Kirsty McColl…
